Recipes Using Rutabagas?

Does anyone have good recipes for rutabagas? My grandmother used to cook them almost like carrots in water, but added something for seasoning. Thanks!

Peggy, I use Rutabags in everything like any vegetable. For soup, I just add some like any other vegetable. Sometime I cook it with potatoes, carrots and onions. Then mash all together. Very good. My mother in law, cook rutabagas, carrots in some tomatoes just then mash all together. That make a creamy soup.

I use bouillon cubes in all my veggies,as you know you should wash & peel the rutabagas, dice them, if too hard warm them before you try to peel them,add enough water to cover them,cover with lid, boil till very tinder, drain & save the water after they are done, taste to see if you need to add black pepper & salt to them, mash them as in mash potatoes, then put part of the liquid you saved on top of them so they want be so dry, very good with southern cornbread.

This is one of our favorite vegetables. I usually prepare them (as the others have stated) then cook until tender with sliced carrots, diced potatoes, and even sliced turnips if they are available.


Drain, mash all together, add butter, a little salt, black pepper. This combination (all mashed up) also makes a wonderful thickener for soups (taking into account the strong flavor of the rutabagas and turnips.)
